What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
SMP is a method of depositing pigment into the epidermal layer of the skin on the scalp, which replicates hair follicles. SMP is an excellent option for women with low hair density and thinning.
How does Scalp Micropigmentation help women with hairloss?
SMP conceals the bare scalp, thus creating the illusion of fuller hair. You know, when you go to the salon and get your hair colored, when you leave the salon, your hair looks fuller. That's because your scalp gets stained with the hair color, and you can no longer see the shiny scalp coming through. SMP creates the same illusion, and when you look at the scalp closely, the pigment added to your scalp looks like hair follicles or hair stubble!
Is Scalp Micropigmentation Painful?
The pain level is different for everyone. For the most part clients explain the feeling as mildly uncomfortable. In some cases, clients even fall asleep while receiving the treatment. In other cases, clients experience a bit of pain across the temples or above the ears during treatment. On a scale from 1-10 most clients rate their pain as 3-5 during treatment.
How long will SMP Last?
SMP usually lasts for many years with proper care and treatment. For the best SMP results using sunscreen is highly recommended. Client health also plays a part in the SMP results lasting as long as possible. Healthy clients with normal immune systems can expect the color to last for 4-5 years.
How will my scalp look right after the SMP treatment?
You can expect to see some redness for the first 24 hours after the treatment, and If you have a darker skin tone, this will be less visible. The pigmentation will be darker for the first seven days. As the pigment-filled scabs peel off, the pigmentation will get lighter. As the scabs flake away, the SMP impressions will look smaller. The final dots, usually 90 to 170 Um in diameter, blends seamlessly into your natural hair.
